Rugby World Cup: Kenya to face Tonga
Kenya to face Tonga in their opening World Cup Rugby fixture in San Francisco USA on Friday.
The Kenya rugby sevens team will this morning run out for their opening fixture against Tonga as the Rugby World Cup starts in San Francisco.
Fresh from an impressive season where they finished 8th after the recently concluded Sevens Series with a historic 104 points, Kenya coach Innocent Simiyu has said his boys will need to be in their best form in a tournament that has adopted a new knockout format.
